Product description

Review

'instantly engage the child from the very beginning. Unlike other books for children they take absolutely no time at all to grasp the child's attention as the die cuts, bright colours and other mechanisms magically enthral the child almost the second the child reaches for the book. ... delightful ... it is clear to see that they go far beyond the realms of everyday books; enlightening, inspiring and exciting children by clever twists in each book. They are very competitively priced and sure to be a winner with all small children.'
Family Fun Guide

Hervés work is a sumptuous visual assault to the eyes, a stylised celebration of colour, of pattern, of textures - and a few, but not too many, well-chosen words. ... the brevity of text is precisely what brings the books to life. They are designed to encourage lively interaction, to prompt the readers to tell their own stories and, most importantly, for parents and children to share and enjoy a mutual experience. ... The series of six Let's Play Games! books focuses on the theme of playful discovery, with a mix of textures, flaps and cut-outs in a chunky boardbook format that will sustain a good degree of robust manhandling from toddlers. ... [Tullet's] style has distinct echoes of modern art from the likes of Picasso, Dali and Matisse.'

About the Author

Hervé Tullet was born in 1958. After studying Fine Art, he worked as an Art Director before joining the advertising industry. In 1994 he published his first book for children and has since become one of the world's most innovative book makers. Known in France as "The Prince of pre-school books", Tullet takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. He is the father of two boys and a girl, who never fail to inspire him.

Having loved "Press Here", I'm keen to see more of his work, so thought this would tie in with the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge theme of Creepy House. It has the outline of a house, and each page is a black cut out of a parent and child exploring a dark, outside world. Very few words and I wasn't sure what I was doing with it. On the back page is a small note about needing a grown up and a torch to play the game, but i'm still not sure what that would achieve. I'm going to try again in the dark!! I still think his imagination and concepts are novel and refreshing.

This is a great little book and a fantastic idea - I used it as a bedtime story with my 3 year old and 5 year old nephews and they loved it, we had to do the story about 10 times and then we started to use the images in reverse order and made up our own story to go with it. The first thing they wanted the next morning was to do the story again.

What a wonderful book! We are well on our way to collecting all the Hervé Tullet books. My 1 year old son delights at the shadows on the wall this book creates and I have no doubt he will enjoy it in the years ahead. We have also given this as a gift and the parents loved it - 'never seen a book like this before' they said.

In combination with "The Game in the Dark", otherwise known is our household as "Glow in the Dark Book" , this has transformed bedtimes. No coercion nor blackmailing needed whatsoever when the allure of one or both of these books ends the evening.

A bit awkward to use and could be longer but our two year old loves this. The game of light by the same author offers a very similar product if you prefer, both are equally loved!
